[image]The Moorish Warrior - William Merritt Chase
In all likelihood, the scimitar examined by the powerful black man shown here belonged to the artist. Indeed, what we see is a model posing among William Merritt Chase's carefully arranged studio props. This is probably the painting that Chase was completing in Venice for a German client immediately before he returned to the United States. One of the most ambitious undertakings of his early career, The Moorish Warrior demonstrates Chase's desire to participate in the international trend for exot...

[image]Woman in a Red Bodice and Her Child - Mary Cassatt
Mary Cassatt, who settled in Paris in 1874, was the only American to be invited to exhibit with the French Impressionists. She met Edgar Degas in 1877, and although she was not officially his student, his art had a lasting effect on the development of her own. His influence may be felt in the radical angles and eccentric composition of Mother and Child, a painting that also employs the mirror motif often found in the art of Edouard Manet, whose work Cassatt also admired...

[image]Nude Woman Drying Herself (Femme au Tub) - Edgar Degas
Embracing the Impressionist credo of painting modern life, Degas concentrated on the daily rituals of urban dwellers. In this image, typical of his bather scenes, Degas captures his subject from behind and in motion as she vigorously towels herself after a bath. Bright light pours in from the window, highlighting her left breast but otherwise casting her body in shadow and limiting clear definition of both facial and bodily features...

[image]Study for 'The Wounded Drummer Boy' - Eastman Johnson
Eastman Johnson drew his inspiration for this Civil War picture from an incident that reportedly occurred during the Battle of Antietam (1863) in which an injured drummer boy asked a comrade to carry him so that he could continue drumming his unit forward. The emblematic image of a heroic youth literally rising above the chaos of the battlefield resonated deeply with Northern audiences both during and after the war...

[image]The Old Blue-Tiled Mosque Outside of Delhi, India - Edwin Lord Weeks
While many nineteenth-century European artists were known for their “exotic” North African and Middle Eastern subjects, the American expatriate Edwin Lord Weeks was exceptional in also undertaking paintings based on three remarkable extended visits to India (in 1882, 1886, and 1892). In these works, Weeks’s virtuoso talent for the dynamic transcription of brilliant light and color allowed him to represent subjects that some genteel Western audiences might otherwise have found unacceptable...

[image]View from Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn - Rudolph Cronau
On special assignment for a German newspaper, Rudolph Cronau came to America to document its cities, frontier lands, and Native American populations for curious European audiences. His training at the Düsseldorf art academy, which emphasized careful draftsmanship, is clearly evident in this romanticized vista of Brooklyn’s famous Green-Wood Cemetery at sunset. Conceived in tones of black and white for reproduction, this watercolor features the Gothic-style entrance arch at center, the classic...

[image]Handsome Morning -- A Dakota - Harry C. Edwards
In this studio portrait, the Brooklyn artist Harry Edwards painted the Native American Handsome Morning, wearing a fringed shift with painted emblems, a bead-and-quill necklace, beaded moccasins, and a ceremonial blanket of fur-lined buffalo hide painted with abstract motifs (a speciality of Dakota women). Edward's identification of his sitter as a Dakota, or a Sioux, is meaningful because the Sioux retained perhaps the most lasting hold on white imaginations owing to the charismatic Ghost Dance...

[image]The Marriage at Cana (Les noces de Cana) - James Tissot
This scene depicts a wedding at Cana, where Jesus performs his first miracle before his disciples and his mother, Mary. Although this feast was amply supplied with water—a necessity for the frequent purifications demanded by Jewish ritual, Tissot notes— the celebration had run out of wine, as Mary points out to her son. Jesus then turns jars of water into wine, much to the astonishment of his host and fellow guests, who curiously peer over the table to look into the vessels...

[image]Saint Luke (Saint Luc) - James Tissot
For his narrative of the life of Christ, Tissot created a “harmony” of the Gospels, combining the separate accounts of Jesus’ life attributed to the apostles Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These four New Testament texts differ from one another in theological emphasis and tone. A harmony, a literary form traced to the second-century Christian writer Tatian, seeks to reconcile the differences among the four Gospels and to piece together one continuous chronology of Jesus’ life, verse by ve...

[image]The Magdalene Before Her Conversion (Madeleine avant sa conversion ) - James Tissot
Apart from Jesus, Mary Magdalene is the only individual in Tissot’s series accorded more than one study, or portrait—an exception that announces her importance, not only to the narrative itself but also to the artist. As scholars have suggested, Tissot appears to have modeled the Magdalene’s features after his late mistress, Mrs. Kathleen Newton, who had died of tuberculosis in 1882. Like many in the nineteenth century, the painter was particularly interested in the occult, and he had atte...

[image]Mrs. Sylvester Gardiner, née Abigail Pickman, formerly Mrs. William Eppes - John Singleton Copley
John Singleton Copley achieved his reputation as the greatest portraitist of the colonial era through his ability to create pleasing likenesses of Boston's elite. This portrait of Abigail Pickman Gardiner (1733–1780), wife of the wealthy landowner and physician Sylvester Gardiner, demonstrates Copley's talent for capturing both the factual appearance (note, in particular, his naturalistic handling of the hands and drapery folds) and the social pretensions of his sitter...

[image]The Fitting - Mary Cassatt
An exhibition of more than seven hundred ukiyo-e prints in Paris in 1890 inspired the expatriate Impressionist Mary Cassatt to experiment with color printing, resulting in her most formally daring and technically ambitious works. In the manner of Japanese print series, she conceived of a set of ten images, including this and In the Omnibus, depicting the daily activities of a typical middle-class woman...

[image]Apple Tree in Bloom (Pommier en fleurs) - Gustave Caillebotte
With his signature use of zooming perspective, Caillebotte lures the viewer into the canvas with a swept path that runs the depth of the garden. His careful depiction of the garden’s strict plan complements his more informal treatment of the apple blossoms, rendered with thick touches of pink, white, and green paint. Strokes of bright orange paint hint at the roofs of the estate’s various buildings, here fragmented by the screen of the flowering tree branches.Object metadata can change over ...

In this glowing portrait of two of his nine children, Rembrandt Peale paid equal tribute to their sisterly love and to their embrace of the family tradition of an artistic calling. Pressed against each another, with arms delicately linked, Rosalba Peale and Eleanor Peale Jacobs sit before a tapestry-covered table on which a palette and volume of music rest. The talented Rosalba, a constant aid in her father's work, holds a drawing tool in her hand.Object metadata can change over time, please che...
